Cutting slope risk

RAIL ROUNDUP

The Scottish arm of Edmund Nuttall and specialist geotechnical division of Ritchies are working in joint venture for Railtrack to stabilise a number of rock cuttings throughout Scotland.

Working with Glasgow based consultant Donaldson Associates, the JV has identified 16 high risk cuttings which are receiving attention, with 90 more sites expected to be tackled by the end of the next financial year.

Stabilisation techniques include traditional rock anchoring and sprayed concrete techniques as well as a new style contoured, rock bolted high tensile mesh.
